The new CAP formalises "dealcoholised wines" by following the OIV adopted framework

The new CAP formalises "dealcoholised wines" by following the OIV adopted framework

The new Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union , published on 6 December 2021, demonstrates great receptiveness to innovation.

One of the new measures for the vitivinicultural sector is the official laying down of conditions for the dealcoholisation and partial dealcoholisation of wines. In defining this new framework, the EU has used the work of the OIV as a basis, in particular Resolutions OIV-ECO 523-2016, OIV-ECO 433-2012 and OIV-ECO 432-2012.

The designation of the product category (a compulsory particular) is now to be accompanied by the terms “de-alcoholised” or “partially de-alcoholised” for the following products: “wine”, “sparkling wine” and “aerated semi-sparkling wine”. Total dealcoholisation is limited to products that do not benefit from a designation of origin or a geographical indication. Partial dealcoholisation is permitted for all wines, sparkling wines and aerated semi-sparkling wines.

The alcoholic strength by volume threshold between “de-alcoholised” and “partially de-alcoholised” is the same as that accepted by the OIV in 2012, namely 0.5%.
